CoOperative Agency

They are friends,
I imagine,
Or perhaps unfamiliar
yet curious
neighbors.

These two seem to like
to lick
each other

And probably value public transparency
more than personal privacy

I wonder
how they became work out
and play in partners,
surprisingly athletic,
flexible,
and inventive

With minds
that began flirting,
Engaging bodies
now urgently culminating.

Benediction
for this newly heated
yet ancient
sacred communion

A warm summer kiss,
a shared soiled towel,
a sapient smile
in the shower.

Gifted Doorways

“Grief can be a doorway to love.”
Robin Wall Kimmerer, Braiding Sweetgrass

Grief can open toward gratitude
As loss can open doors to access gain

As trauma can open hearts
to therapeutic brains

As neglect can foster curious compassion

As depression
can incite active
co-empathic impressions

As double negative sociopathologies
can notice doorways
to positive psychologies

As double-binding
dualdark entropy
can open space
for positive double-binary energy strings
of co-empathic
multiculturing time

As isolating sadness
can open doors
to love’s transcendent gladness.

Reflections On Ancient Love

Long before sun light
was born from starkness

Long before Earth’s dawn
broiled unsteady hot star fire

Long before She filled
Her scarlet mind
with Yang’s high hills
time was this love

This ancient life
is reborn.

Long before our trees
greenly filled
Mother’s forests

Long before a wind
unsailed to sing
Earth’s wholesome songs

Long before She filled
Her turqjuoise mind
across Her seas,
time rewinds love

This ancient life
health born.

Long before Earth’s great chain
of being
forged ecocidal
egosystems

Long before a voice
could speak
divine creation

Long before She filled
Her bleeding heart
to grow a child
there is Earth’s love

This ancient life
wealth torn.

Long before a Truth
of love’s life
could be broken

Long before our wounds
were nailed upon a Mother Tree

Long before She laid Her body down
under His light
time spins this love

This ancient life
still born.

Wakeful each night
Greeting Earth’s dawning

Stubborn as trees
rebirthing burned
wounded hills

As we fill our healing minds
to hold Earth’s timeless time
This ancient love
Her aching life
flows stumbling on.

Note: This is a theological/ecological reflection on the lyrics to “This Ancient Love” words and music by Carolyn McDade, Copyright by Surtsey Publishing/ 1996, by Carolyn McDade.  These are the word choices I hear when speaking and singing Carolyn McDade’s beautiful composition. Not experienced, meant, intended as an improvement, update, or correction, but as a Both/And communion of sad sacred gratitude, in preparation for Earth Day, 2022.

What Is This Thing?

What is this thing
called mortal love?
Yet not a Thing
at all

At least a Relationship,
Which, of course,
requires two or more
to adore-fully dance
or, divorcing,
fall

Back into Earth’s green ball
planting and replanting health
without one sign to recall
LeftBrain conserving dominance
preserving StraightWhiteMale prominence
throughout his-story’s clumsy appall

Peace brokers wondering,
How grows this integrity,
felt immortal passion
not not mortally unknown
after bodies
and before spirits
good health natured
co-arising All

These sacred relationships
for Earth’s immortal love
in one dynamic place,
passions springing forth
toward warm best known
recall.

Ecological Process Theology

If theology is the study
of ecological experience
most ruddy

I call on Yang’s higher powers
and Yintegrity’s deeper showers
of omniscience
and sensual omnipotence

Internal light
and externally powerful
omnipresence
naturally pantheistic
and spiritually panenegoistic

Cooperatively health
and resiliently wealthy
safe ecological co-empathic relationships
swelling expansive anthros less pessimistic
experienced with LeftBrain dominantly speaking egos
with theologically experienced reflection
realistic

To RightBrain bilateral eco-systems
of spirited-nature nonviolence
as yintegral Yang’s potential economic balance
less divisibly autistic

When individuals may be egos
and corporations
and incarnations
and monoculturing
colonizing nations

Closed and Open missions
Win/Lose and Win/Win
ZeroSum divisive
and NonZero full-global missive

Slipping down into degenerative
lose/lose Hell non-survivable
or heading up into regenerative
Heaven holistic
nondualistic
transcendent thrival

Where theological resonance
greets ecological resilience

Then monocultural predation
slips behind polycultural intention
extension of capital enlightened economies
for multi-theological health
and political empowering ecologies
of poly-nonpathological wealth

Theologically reflecting
on nonviolent communication
holey re-poleing sense systems
thriving by polyvagal win/win default
neuro-ecological can’t resist’ems

If theology is our study
of Earth’s ecological experience
most rutty
ruddy.

Restoring Tarnished Virtues

God’s oral,
and Gaia’s ancient anal
naturally spiritual laws
are win/win discursive,
not win/lose debating,
when climate polycultural conditions
are democratically healthy thriving

Not blaming,
judging,
shaming,
cursive,
as when monoculturing colonizations
of EurAsians autocratically
and kleptocratically sick
and barely monotheistically surviving
curiously endure inhumane denial
of runaway capitalist win/lose
LeftBrain dominant
straight white patriarchal
lose/lose ego/eco-fading systemic nihilism

Repression of ecowomanist mindfulness
lustiness
integrity
bilateral resilience

Suppression of post-traumatic climate stress disorder

Depression
of PolyCultural Sacred Law
for and of
humane sensory EarthTherapeutic Justice

Musical
mindfully mused
meditative medication
as Blue/Green
4/4
Who Are We For?
regenerative rhythmed peace.

Our Place in Time

As autonomous Space
is to emPowering internally uniting Matter,

So too is eternal stasis,
emptiness of incarnate co-relational,
changing,
flowing Time
to enLightened Energy,
Whole OpenSystemic,
universal

Lose/Lose past ZeroZone
absence of verbalized memory,
through Win/Lose present
window to Win/Win future
nondualistic Ego-place
within EcoSystemic synergetic Time

Left/Right bilaterally hemispheric
intelligent SpaceBody/MindTime.
